On Wednesday, May 7, Candy Spelling will discuss her newest book, Candy at Last,“ in conversation with Stephanie Davis-Smith, editor of The Atlantan magazine, at the MJCCA.
Candy at Last is the follow-up to Spelling’s New York Times bestseller, Stories from Candyland. This time out, Candy has even better stories to tell—most notably, about her notorious rift with her daughter Tori, their reconciliation in recent years, and their current close relationship. Candy at Last shares her story of how family, friends, and her husband’s inspiring advice to “follow your dreams” has made her determined to live life to the fullest.
After 38 happy years of marriage to influential producer Aaron Spelling, raising two children in Hollywood, and co-managing one of the largest estates in the country (finally selling Spelling Manor, as detailed on her HGTV series, for $85 million), Candy is now adjusting to life on her own—downsizing to a Century City condo. She’s ready to share the most intimate details of her life with Aaron; how his illness with Alzheimer’s caused her to question her identity; and how she’s reinvented herself as an independent woman, businesswoman, and television personality.
Along the way, Candy reveals all-new dishy stories, including those of Hollywood friends Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Michael Jackson, Janet Leigh, Dean Martin, and Elizabeth Taylor (her lifelong rival over their jewelry).
On Wednesday, May 20, at 7:30 pm, the MJCCA presents a new speaker series titled, “ICONS: The People Who Change Our World,” which kicks off with Joey Reiman, founder and CEO of the global consultancy, BrightHouse, an Atlanta-based company.
Reiman will discuss his most recent book, The Story of Purpose: The Path to Creating a Brighter Brand, a Greater Company, and a Lasting Legacy, with local TV personality and host Conn Jackson. Reiman was named by Fast Company Magazine as “One of the 100 people who will change the way the world thinks,” and is a brand expert known for putting the smile on the Pepperidge Farm goldfish cracker.
